My husband and I both had the three course set lunch menu here and were so happy we did! From the salad to the dessert, everything was super delicious and fresh! The price was also so reasonable and the portion size was perfect - I think it was around 25 USD for both of us with tip. We loved every... More

The food here is of a high standard with great presentation and imaginative dishes. It's a lovely little restaurant in a gorgeous setting. If you're craving French food in Vientiane - or just want to find out what this original French city has to offer, you can't go past this place.

There are many French restaurants in Vientiane, most of which are worth a try. This one however is certainly the best. The atmosphere is pleasant, the service very good and the food absolutely delicious. From the complimentary fois gras with delectable beet garnish to the duck with mushroom sauce, I savoured every tiny morsel. It is of a standard well... More

One of my favourite in Vientiane this is the place for a nice venue for a romantic dinner or a lunch business meeting. Great food, tasty and very well presented. This is top end food in Vientiane. Excellent wines served in Riedel glasses that are perfect for the wines. Definitely worth a visit.

Let's face it -Vientiane is not the most exciting of places to visit. However, we managed to have a couple of really excellent French meals which helped to mitigate. Le Silapa looks underwhelming on the lower bar floor although we sampled some very good NZ Sauvignon Blanc by the glass as an aperitif. At least it was not empty as... More

Although frontage is small, easy to identify with Eiffel Tower model at front door. Food is good and service is acceptable. Staff not proficient in English but still can order without much trouble. Food is pricey, but this is standard for French restaurants in Asia.

The decor of Le Silapa is very minimalist, and the night I went the restaurant was almost empty, although a couple of tables had reserved signs on them. The menu offered a very limited choice, although it is possible that it is changed every day. I had the cream of mushroom soup, and was brought a large dishful; frankly I... More

Don't judge this restaurant by the exterior. Go up the stairs from the I Beam bar and find yourself in a high ceilinged room with original art of the walls. The food is exceptional as is the service. Great French food and worth every penny

Have dined at Le Siliapa in 2013 & 2014 but been a while between meals. Once again the food was of the highest quality. Highly recommended this establishment for anyone wanting a fine dining experience of French cuisine in Laos (which by my experience is well worthwhile).
